Taking umbrage at the words that fall from Rush Limbaugh’s blubbery lips like so many wriggling maggots is a fool’s game. He lives for us to take umbrage. (This is also why we hardly ever let you know about, say, Ann Coulter’s latest bons mots about how black people all are murdery. That, and we frankly don’t like what happens to our gentle commenters when we throw Coulter Meat at them.) But what is Rush Limbaugh on about now?
You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun.
But perhaps we are taking Rush Limbaugh’s calls to shoot sluts if they want abortions out of context. So let’s examine it further!
CALLER: You can’t spend 40 years telling people and telling children that if I make a mistake — if something comes up and this child that I don’t want is in the way of my future and the way of me graduating high school, is in the way of me going to college, is the way of me being happy, is in the way of whatever I want out of life — then it’s okay for me to kill the baby. But later on when I become a disgruntled employee, when I become an unhappy student at school because children are bullying me, then I want to eliminate them to get them out of the way? It’s the same concept.
RUSH: Well, it’s a good point. You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun.
So we will just leave that there then. We have things we need to do that include not discussing Rush Limbaugh’s doubtless brilliantly satirical call — we are sure it is just us, not “getting” the “joke” — to shoot women with guns if they want (legal) abortions. This kitchen floor isn’t going to lie on itself.
